Issue details

2016/17 Speed Management Programme – Relocation of Speed Limits - Experimental Traffic Regulation Orders

Purpose of Report:
(i) To review the speed data and any objections to the experimental traffic regulation orders to determine the impact of moving 30 speed limits closer to the villages at Copmanthorpe (Tadcaster Road), Dunnington (Common Lane) and Hopgrove (Hopgrove Lane South).
(ii) To re-consider whether to change the speed limit start point at Murton Way, Murton.

The Executive Member is asked:
(i) To make the experimental orders permanent or revert to the previous arrangements at each location.
(ii) To consider changing the speed limit start point at Murton Way subject to usual TRO process.

This item has been deferred to the Decision Session on 15 November as the data to determine the outcome of the speed limit trials has not all been received and is currently being chased up.  Follow up speeds surveys are due to be repeated at Hopgrove Lane South and at Tadcaster Road, Copmanthorpe in the coming weeks.  The results will be forwarded as soon as possible to allow for detailed analysis, unfortunately this work will not be concluded in time to meet the October report deadlines.


This item has been deferred to the Decision Session on the 20 December.

Reason: Data collection is still on-going at one of the sites and therefore the report will not be ready for consideration until the December meeting.
